Not satisfied with utilizing trailers and posters to sell the movie, we now have the first interactions between Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie in Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck’s upcoming thriller The Tourist. The poster we revealed last month clearly showcased Depp and Jolie as the main selling point, and this clip seems to follow right in line with that. Instead of showing an action piece or something involving other characters (Paul Bettany and Timothy Dalton are in the film as well), we get this flirtatious interaction between the main characters. While I’m not completely sold on the film yet, I am intrigued by what is being held back and the fact that Christopher McQuarrie co-wrote the script. The Tourist hits theaters December 10th, and you can hit the jump to check out the clip for the film, complete with synopsis.
“Johnny Depp stars as an American tourist whose playful dalliance with a stranger leads to a web of intrigue, romance and danger in The Tourist. During an impromptu trip to Europe to mend a broken heart, Frank (Depp) unexpectedly finds himself in a flirtatious encounter with Elise (Angelina Jolie), an extraordinary woman who deliberately crosses his path. Against the breathtaking backdrop of Paris and Venice, their whirlwind romance quickly evolves as they find themselves unwittingly thrust into a deadly game of cat and mouse.”
